The inaugural Alternative Expeditionary Learning Semester finished in December 2020. Details on future educational programs are coming soon!
In fall 2020, Maine Maritime Museum launched a special semester-long educational experience for sixth and seventh-graders. This interdisciplinary program was limited to a pod of only 15 students and classes were held outdoors in the museum’s historic shipyard for the majority of the semester.
The interdisciplinary curriculum, developed in collaboration with a Maine state certified teacher, followed state standards in math, science, ELA, and social studies, while fostering pride of place with a focus on maritime history and culture, arts, and traditional shipyard skills.
Located on 20 acres with expansive, outdoor spaces, MMM offers ample opportunity to comply with physical distancing requirements while also providing the social and educational benefits of in-person teaching and experiential learning. The museum has decades of experience teaching students of all ages in engaging and memorable ways.
